Toronto Mayor Rob Ford admitted on Tuesday to smoking crack in his past, apologizing and saying he did it while in one of his "drunken stupors," according to a report from CTV News.
"Yes, I have smoked crack cocaine. But I am not an addict," Ford told a group of reporters at Toronto City Hall. Ford said it was about a year since he had smoked crack.
"I've made mistakes," Ford said. "All I can do now is apologize and move on."
The bombshell revelation comes days after Toronto Police Chief Bill Blair said police had recovered a video that's been reported in the media as showing the mayor smoking from a crack pipe.
Ford said there were a "couple of isolated incidents" when he's been in a "drunken stupor."
He called on Blair, once again, to release the video.
"I don’t' even recall there being a tape and a video. So I want to see the state that I was in. I don’t know what else I can say."
